        I kinda hate it when Ronny acts like a kid, especially when I see a kid acts like an adult. Something about his personality gets under my skin. I know it's a joke but c' mon have some respect

                  This is bullshit. There is a lot more nuance to Andrew Yang's platform than "lets give everyone free money and not question wherr it comes from". They give other candidates serious interviews on the Daily Show but they just make Yang the butt of a joke. How are there more likes than dislikes when everyone in the comments is trashing this video? I smell bots; looks like Yang was right!

                      There’s a reason I stopped watching this show. This was sad. Yang is a smart man with good ideas

                        How can one find this comical and infuriating at the same time? It was funny yes, but he needs a serious interview. Trevor you are one of the most popular social media influencers around, you need to give this man a SERIOUS interview because his views and ideas are what this country needs. The comedy skit interview was great but now is the time to get serious.

                                    I think this was a way to make Yang more popular among younger consumers. Millennials and younger gens.
                                    Kids who are not so politic savvy, it’s an easier way to consume in their terms. It’s more evident to their gen this is not a video to disrespect or misrepresent majority of their population.
                                    Having that said, not all young generations will read the message the same way.

                                          i am extremely disappointed with you trevor. you made a joke of andrew yangs campaign and prevented him from going in depth about his platform. Andrew Yang has a lot of ideas that would have been great to talk about on your show and would have given insight on a lot of issues that most Americans are not thinking about. You allowed many other candidates the chance to have a proper discussion but not yang. Truly disappointed with you trevor.

                                              Andrew Yang deserves so much more respect than you gave him. Have him on your show so he can really show you why he deserves.

It would've been a real interview with a serious presidential candidate (top 6 polling as of this comment) with clever jokes tossed in to keep it light. He would've done better - I said it and I stand by it. I like Trevor Noah and Ronny Chieng both but this was absolute shit.

The report defines a college as affordable for low-income students if they can pay tuition, afford to live and have $300 available in case of emergencies through a combination of grants (including the Pell grant), loans, expected family contribution — the amount colleges ask families pay based on their finances — and funds from a work-study job and a summer job.

Trevor Noah and the Daily Show is a comedy show at the end of the day (read: they're a joke). So for Kamala Harris to be taken seriously on this show, actually predicts her loss.
